Jokes to Tell Your Gradeschooler

Updated on August 5, 2012

For most of my life, my dad and I have always traded what we call "groaners" back and forth. The more the joke makes us groan because of how bad it is or how stupid it is, the harder we laugh. Following are some of our favorites jokes. I hope you and your kids enjoy them as much as my dad and I enjoy them.

These are not our original jokes. I do not know who came up with them in order to offer credit. My nieces came up with a few of these.

It is fun to see who can tell the worst joke when the family gets together. Soon, everyone is crying from laughter or holding their sides from laughing so much. Laughter has a way of bringing people closer.

But, officer, I have contacts.
But, officer, I have contacts.

Dad, I'm Freeeeeeezing.

Oops. Sorry.

A police officer pulls a woman over for speeding. He asks for her driver’s license. After looking at the license, the officer says

“Ma’am, it says you are supposed to be wearing glasses. I don’t see you wearing glasses. I’m going to have to write you a ticket.”

The woman says “But officer, I have contacts.”

The officer replies “Ma’am, I don’t care who you know.”

A man gets pulled over and he asks the police office if he was speeding.

“No, sir. Your wife fell out of the car when you went around that curve back there.”

The man replies, “ Oh thank God. I thought I was going deaf.”
